Nathaniel Salmon, LL.B., was the son of the Rev. Thomas Salmon, rector of Mepsall, in Bedfordshire, by his wife, a daughter of the notorious serjeant Bradshaw. He was admitted at Benet college, Cambridge, 11th June, 1690, and took the degree of bachelor of laws in 1695. Shortly after this he took orders in the church of England, and was for some time curate of Westmill, co. Herts. Though he had taken the oaths to king William III. he refused to do so to queen Anne, and when he could no longer officiate as a clergyman he applied himself to the study of physic, which he practised first at St. Ives, in Huntingdonshire, and afterwards at Bishop’s Stortford. He was settled at the last-named town 3rd February, 1709-10, when he was admitted an Extra-Licentiate of the College of Physicians. He died 2nd April, 1742. He was a voluminous writer, as the following list of his works testifies:—
